Two women, two generations, two cultures, two lands.

About

In this duet, dance artists Avatâra Ayuso and Inuk elder Naulaq LeDrew explore the migration experiences that took them away from their native lands in the Spanish Mediterranean and the Canadian Arctic, digging deep into their cultural traditions, histories, humour, prejudices and fears.

"Inuit have a cultural bond with landscape and waterscape. Our family is land and water, just as parents and cousins and siblings are. This familial relationship has briefly been disrupted by colonization. Dance, collaborative creativity, the movement between generations, the coming together of two different cultures is a beautiful way of exploring relationship. Naulaq is our ambassador and Avatâra is our ally."

- Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory  (Artistic Director Qaggiavuut, Nunavut Performing Arts Center)

Avatâra Ayuso has danced and choreographed widely around the world, including choreographic residencies at Hellerau in Dresden and the Teatro del Largo in Chile. 

Naulaq Le Drew is an elder of the Inuit.

NO WOMAN’S LAND was developed through research work among Inuit communities in the Arctic, and premiered at European Centre for the Arts, Hellerau, Dresden, in 2018.  The piece has been further developed for ORIGINS.
